Join Montclair Early Music in our exploration of choral and instrumental music from the early Americas!
Jim Millar, Choral Director; Sian Ricketts, Soprano; Jason Priset, Lute/Guitar
Early Americans enjoyed music in a variety of settings – they played consorts and tunes in their homes; sang hymns and polyphony in churches and cloisters; and enjoyed touring and homegrown theatrical productions and operas.
As exhorted by the earliest American choral composer, William Billings, we will present a concert fit to vanquish the “Goddess of Discord,” featuring the works of Billings himself alongside other North American composers including John Knowles Paine, Francis Hopkinson, and Juan de Lienas, as well as American favorites Santiago de Murcia and Henry Purcell.
